Lazarus IDE for Chrome OS?? Or maybe FPC for Chrome OS??
« on: January 31, 2023, 07:10:10 pm »
Does Lazarus have an IDE that works in Chrome OS?    Or is there an FPC compiler for the Chrome OS?

Man, I don't know a thing about Linux...   :(

It's never too late to learn. :D

When you factor in stuff like "Time I have left in this world" and "Do I really want to learn Linux?"  Then there is a time when it does become too late to learn.   :D  :D

I'm not learning this to become the guy who writes the code to fly the successor to the Space Shuttle, I just wanted to maybe download a compiler on my Chromebook and be able to go back and forth with the same code.  Sometimes I'm away from my computer and all I have is the Chromebook and I'd like to figure something out.  Or maybe apply a solution discussed here on the forum.
So, yeah, Linux?  Boink that!  I'll just code on the computer.

You can simply install the *.debs from sourceforge, but you will still need to learn, as its dependencies are not typically automatically installed, maybe they will with apt, but I use dpkg directly, so I have to follow that with apt install -f.

Basically, there's no (need for) specific ChromeOS Lazarus, as the Linux version works. Can't really avoid learning if you want to develop anyway.

ChromeOS' Linux subsystem, or to be precise virtual machine (in the name of security by sandboxing, they surely can take the Windows route but no, security is put upfront), is based on Debian stable (currently Bullseye).

Attached is the latest stable Lazarus on my Lenovo Yoga C13 opening one of my old projects.
